For more than 30 years, Christmas Hampers have brightened the season for residents of Smtihers, Telkwa and Witset. Each year, SCSA Christmas Hampers provides food for a Christmas dinner as well as some canned and fresh foods to about 1000 people. We also give toys and books to all children 16 years of age and younger. Christmas Hampers depends on support from our community to volunteer, sponsor families and donate food, toys and money.
Christmas Hampers 2020 will look a bit different than in previous years due to COVID-19. We will be offering the program this year with COVID safety in mind.
We will start accepting applications for Christmas Hampers on Nov. 17.
When deciding whether to apply, please remember that Christmas Hampers is for people who need extra support during the holiday season. We expect fewer food and gift donations this year and want to ensure that these go to people truly in need.
You can apply in person at the Old Train Station, 102-3815 Railway Avenue, on Tuesdays from 10-12 and on Fridays from 2:30-4:30. Starting Nov. 17 and ending on Dec. 11
You can also receive an application form by emailing email@example.com. Please be advised you will have to attach a copy of your ID with a valid address for the application form to be accepted.
